Get Involved!

community collaborative

Learn about TESG’s Community Collaborative!

WHO WE ARE:

A group of parents, teachers and community members who want to support and engage with our teachers, students and the community. 

WHAT WE DO:

This group’s primary function centers around community within our school and Greensboro. We will have several core areas of focus this year, including ones that align directly with the school’s mission. Additionally, we will organize regular activities such as teacher appreciation snacks, coordinating volunteer needs, assisting with events, building a community garden, etc. 

WHEN DO WE MEET:

Meetings are once a month, but individual committees may meet at separate times. Additionally, the school will hold a community Family Night the last Thursday of each month. There will be a contact from the Collaborative leadership team (C4) at these events to answer questions. Miss a meeting? Don’t worry! Come the next time! 

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED:

There are many ways to participate! Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours, we hope all parents will get involved. As we develop this year’s core initiatives, expect to receive emails and notification on involvement opportunities. Have lots of ideas? Please attend our C4 leadership meetings, held monthly!   

WHERE DO I FIND MORE INFORMATION: 

Upcoming events and collaborative news will be included in school newsletters. Additionally, please look for information on TESG’s website and Facebook page. http://www.tesgk8.org  Facebook handle: @tesg2018
